When the sun is out in Melbourne, it’s important to make the most of a beautiful day.
Clients at our 5-star aged care community, Arcare Carnegie enjoyed the lovely sunshine in a beautiful sensory garden.
The sensory garden is located just around the corner from the residence, and clients enjoyed walking to the park.
Lifestyle coordinator, Lou Stooke said, “It’s so nice for the clients to be able to get and out about. The trip to the sensory garden has been great for their physical and mental well-being.”
With freshly brewed lattes from Arcare Carnegie’s onsite cafe in hand, clients ventured to the garden to sit on the table and chairs under the rotunda. One team member brought along homemade cookies for everyone to have for morning tea.
Many enjoyed the simple pleasure of watching the day go by. One clients commented, “You can see that it’s about to be Spring,” pointing to the blossoming flowers around the park.
